HOW TO WEAR...

CULOTTES

Let’s face it: culottes are SUPER cute, but they can be confusing. Given the big statement these cropped, wide-leg pants make, it can be hard to know how to style them. So here are some great ideas for how to wear your culottes so you can look great and stay cool these warm summer months!

BUTTON-DOWN

Pair culottes with a more structured top like a tucked-in sleeveless button down or an oversized button-down and a statement necklace.

LACE

The beautiful construction of a lace top (especially a guipure one) looks striking against the wide culotte cut.


STATEMENT CoAT

A long, printed statement jacket looks great billboarding on top of solid-colored culottes.

MONOCHROME

Speaking of solid colors, pair your culottes with a top of the same color (and even material) for chic monochromatic outfit
